We are dedicated to providing you with the
delicious beef anywhere. We practice sustainable, time-honored farming
methods where the cattle graze in rotational pastures, in a humane,
stress-free environment. Our cattle do not receive hormones,
antibiotics or fillers.
At Mack Brook Farm, we have 100%
traceability. Our cattle are born and raised on the farm.
They eat only our pasture grasses during the growing season and then
hay from only our fields in winter. The cattle are unconfined on
over 60 acres of pasture year-round.
These practices have earned Mack Brook Farm the American Grassfed Association's seal. AGA standards do not allow any grain or confinement. Rules that are stricter than the USDA .
We are proud recipients of the Animal Welfare Seal of Approval, assuring you that our cattle are treated with the utmost respect and humane care. In order to maintain this award, Animal Welfare Approved annually audits both our farm and our processor. Animal Welfare Approved is an independent certifying organization.
We insist on dry-aging our beef. Our local processor has been in business over 40 years and ages the meat using the 'swinging beef' process rarely practiced anymore. This method ages every cut giving the meat a deep concentrated flavor. We decide on an individual basis when each animal is ready to market. They travel only five miles to our processor which greatly reduces the stress on the animal. The result is a more marbled grass-finished product with a juicy, tender taste.
